Screening of the ‘Gypsy Fair’ documentary (50min), following the Gypsy and Traveller Culture through the eyes of a team of young Gypsy and Traveller film makers.
The film explores the part that Appleby Horse fair plays in continuing the culture for a new generation of young Gypsies and Travellers. The film raises awareness of the history behind the horse fair and a greater understanding of the often discriminated Gypsy and Traveller community.
The NOISE ‘Gypsy Fair’ shows the transition of the Gypsy and Traveller culture from ancient rural traditions to the 21st Century. The project raised the confidence of the young team of Gypsies and Travellers and involved interviews as diverse as the Liverpool Gypsy Lore Archive and Nico the Gypsy wedding dress designer.
‘Gypsy Fair’ is available to by on DVD in the NOISE Lab
